Gravity light turns people into morons

This neat-looking but impractical light powered by a falling weight has popped up on just about every blog and backwater on the net, always resulting in the same thing. Within three or four posts, someone posts up the obvious fact that this thing can’t work as well as stated. There’s just not enough potential energy in the weight to produce the claimed light output for the claimed duration. In fact, it looks like you might be able to get two minutes if you’re the most optimistic person on the planet. A far cry from the four hours the inventor touts.

So it doesn’t work. Nice idea, but not going to happen.

But then come the morons like this genius from Digg, replying to a comment stating the obvious problem with the design:

It’s especially nice that he subtlety mocks a poster for mistyping the word secret. And at the time of the screenshot above, this fucker had nine diggs. People actually believed this bullshit. And there is more, oh so much more. For instance, the Digg headline actually is completely wrong, implying the gravity lamp will stay lit for two hundred years, while actually the inventor just says the mechanics will last 200 years.

And check out this wunderkind from Reddit’s huge thread, again, replying to someone pointing out the sad truth of this thing:

and this poor soul, typical of many posters:
Picture 3-1

Sigh. You just know these assholes are the same ones that think evolution is a scientific conspiracy and global warming will be nice because those winters are just so cold now. Can they all just fucking die?

Marc Fiszman, you SUCK!

Marc Fiszman , Douche Bag
Check out this douche bag software freedom fighter: he publicly posts a crack for Twitterific, an OS X Twitter client. See, he’s unhappy because iconfactory has the nerve to ask for $15 – or use it for free and watch some ads.


We’re not talking $500 or an app that doesn’t have a replacement and he’s a dirt poor pig-fucker. He just doesn’t think he should have to pay. And check out the asshole-in-chief space cadet-in-chief in action in the comments section of the crack announcement.

So, he’s an asshole, but check out this page. This is Seth Dillingham’s post about his campaign to get people to pay. Look at the discussion thread section at Marc’s comment (provided as a handy .png here in case it gets erased.)

Is he seriously threatening Seth’s server over this? Similar words were posted in the original comments section by him, so it appears genuine.

SunRocket and TeleBlend, you SUCK!

Fuck you assholes and your so-called service. One group of assholes screws you out of your money and silently turns off your phone (hope you didn’t need 911), then hands your service over to another company (TeleBendOver) who proceeds to lock you out of your own VOIP hardware so you have to buy new equipment if you want to move to another provider.

I hope you assholes end up in a prison next to the Enron folks.
